Track title: Free track
Within the second year there are plenty of options to design your own programme by creating a track in the field of your interest, which can for example be survey research, educational measurements, or biomedical research. However, you can also choose to follow our predefined track: Official Statistics (which has a European Master of Official Statistics label).
Track title: EMOS track (Official Statistics)
We offer a track in Official Statistics, i.e. statistics as it is carried out at statistical bureaus such as Statistics Netherlands and planning bureaus. EMOS stands for European Master of Official Statistics, which is a EUROSTAT initiative, and Utrecht is the only Dutch University who has been awarded the label to offer EMOS. Within this track, you will follow an extended elective course entitled EMOS Core Module taught mainly by Statistics Netherlands, and you will also prepare and write your thesis under the supervision of Statistics Netherlands employees.
For more information on the EMOS track, please contact Prof Peter van der Heijden.
